Over did it when excersising on Thursday and still have considerable pain in solar plexus area is this normal and what can I do to help?

Push fluids/rest: Yes it is fairly normal to have continued pain for up to a week if you overdid the exercise in the abdominal area. Just drink lots of water and back off on the exercise. It may take a week or two but you should be back to normal soon. Always increase exercise regimens slowly to avoid muscle strain and this type of pain.

? GERD: Or Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease can cause the constellation of symptoms you mentioned and definitely can worsen asthma symptoms. You want to see your doctor, meanwhile, take your asthma medicines, controller and rescue medicines, as prescribed, try OTC antacids/PPI as omeprazole, unless contraindicated, read the labels carefully, best wishes

I am having extreme pain in my solar plexus area that radiates to my back and it only seems to go away when laying on my back when with knees up.?

I am having extreme pain in my solar plexus area that radiates to my back and it only seems to go away when laying on my back when with knees up.?

The celiac or solar: Plexus is a complex network of nerves located in the abdomen near where the celiac trunk, superior mesenteric artery and renal arteries branch from the abdominal aorta. Pain from that area radiating to the back is a classic symptom of pancreatitis, but could also be pain from stomach or duodenal ulcer, gastritis. You need to see your Doctor or go to Urgent Care. Good wishes:)

I am feeling indigestion type pain in the solar plexus area of my stomach as well as a nagging pain in my jaw muscles. Any ideas what this could be?

Are you grinding: Your teeth? This could be a very simple reason for why your jaw muscles are sore or you could also be clenching a lot. Often associated with stressful life episodes. Don't know about the indigestion, though.

Chest pain when I stand up. Not always but when it happens it feels like someone is crushing solar plexus area. Really hurts. Last s for half an hour.

Chest pain when I stand up. Not always but when it happens it feels like someone is crushing solar plexus area. Really hurts. Last s for half an hour.

Chest Pain Young Fem: Unlikely that this is a serious problem; but not guaranteed. Healthtap appears to note that you have already had a Chest X-ray and Stress Test. Is that correct? Are you an athlete? Past surgery on heart, lungs, or chest? Other symptoms during episodes (trouble breathing, lightheaded, pain in jaw/arms, sweating?). Recommend regular visit with your doctor as soon as possible.

My solar plexus area really hurts, and when I eat it gets worse. What could cause this? I was doing bench presses day before

Internal not muscula: This sounds like a stomach or intestinal problem not a muscular problem. See your physician. Muscle soreness does not get worse when you eat.

I fell flat onto my vacuum cleaner and hit my solar plexus and feel very sensitive in that area now and can't open or close jars. Will this heal soon.?

I fell flat onto my vacuum cleaner and hit my solar plexus and feel very sensitive in that area now and can't open or close jars. Will this heal soon.?

Doctor can evaluate: Pain at the bottom front of the chest and the upper abdomen can be from bruised ribs and/or bruised tummy muscles, but one cannot tell for sure without an evaluation. If the wrists or hands were injured, and one cannot grasp lids to open or close jars, there may be a fracture, so a doctor can check to see if an xray is needed.

I have a large brown splotch on the area beneath both my breasts. It lays vertically on my solar plexus. It's not tineas versicolor. It doesn't match?

I have a large brown splotch on the area beneath both my breasts. It lays vertically on my solar plexus. It's not tineas versicolor. It doesn't match?

How long: How long has this large brown splotch been present beneath your breasts? Some areas of hyperpigmentation can be congenital. Chronic skin irritation such as with fungal infections which are common if the area beneath your breasts stay moist can also cause the skin to be hyperpigmented. An exam is necessary to know for sure what is going on. Hope this helps.

Gallbladder disease: Gall stones are very common. Symptoms include ab pain after meals, especially fatty, spicy meals. Nausea and vomiting are also commonly present. Gall bladder cancer is much less common. Symptoms may mimic gall stone symptoms. The work up for both includes an ultrasound and blood work. Find a doctor near you for further care.

Pain in solar plexus, following severe bout GI distress (mainly gas), lead to e/r visit and passing of gallstone while under observation...Now what!?!

Surgery: Hi. It sounds like you had a bad gallbladder attack. I am uncertain what you mean by "passing a gallstone" but I assume that you were seen by a gallbladder surgeon & gallbladder surgery was recommended. I advise you to follow-up with that surgeon for definitive treatment. Good luck!

What do I do if I have pain in my solar plexus?

Solar plexus: This can't be diagnosed with the information that is available. A history, physical examination & other studies may be needed to determine cause/causes. Once accurately assessed a treatment plan can be developed.
